Added DiffLines:

* {{Flanderization}}: The sequel takes certain aspects of the characters and dials them UpToEleven:
** George made a lot dumber.
** Beatrice's villainy is amped up. In the first film, she doesn't approve of Ursula and George's relationship, but seems to relent. In the sequel, she stops at nothing to break them up.
** Betsy - in the first film, she jokes once about hooking up with George. In the sequel, she willingly ignores her best friend getting knocked out in hopes of finding out if George has a brother, then later, forces herself on him to [[ItMakesSenseInContext help break her hypnosis]].

** It's not rather surprising that Ursula eventually decides that she doesn't want to marry Lyle anymore. First he gatecrashes Ursula's trek through Africa and tries to drag her back home, even when it's clear that she's enjoying herself there and doesn't want to leave. Then he nearly kills one of the group's porters, and has the nerve to [[NeverMyFault blame the porter's "inexperience" for it]]. ''Then'' he treats the porters as if they barely understand the modern world (referring to a lighter and camera as "magic fire" and a "magic picture", respectively). '''Then''' he drags Ursula into the jungle so that they can find a white ape and therefore leave, gets both of them lost, [[DirtyCoward and ditches Ursula when they encounter a lion]]. And the next time he sees her, [[BlatantLies he claims that he was fighting the lion the whole time]], and that she's just too scared to remember this. And this is just the first act.
*** Heck, even Lyle pretty much hit the nail on his own head when he thinks the guides are saying that he's the biggest jerk they've ever seen in their lives. Which to be precise, he really is.
** Ursula's mother's not so nice, either. She is completely insistent that Ursula marry Lyle, even when Ursula adamantly refuses, and even after Ursula lays out everything Lyle did (see above). Ursula's mother even tells George that Ursula couldn't really love him and that they're from two different worlds, and that he should just go home, or else [[CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon she'll remove his reason for wearing a loincloth]]. Although her schemes ultimately fail, she ends up as a KarmaHoudini in the first movie.
*** The second movie has her continue to try and pair Ursula up with Lyle, even though, by this time, Ursula's already married to George--''and has a son!''! [[spoiler:She finally gets her comeuppance this time, though.]]
